It is hard to believe that the beating and murder of a man could be a good thing . . . But, in the case of India it may very well be a very good thing.
India as well as other countries in the middle-east have suffered for years the abuse and rape of women. The culture leaves many women preyed upon by men, often numerous men that believe it acceptable to rape women traveling without a male family member. There have also been numerous tourists also raped while traveling in these countries.
It is common for women to be verbally abused everywhere they go by men that by their culture believes that women should be treated in such a manner. There have been numerous cases here in the US in which young women who have dressed provocatively have been sexually assaulted simply because they were dressed in a manner that an immigrant from the middle-east believed was conducive to his culture acceptable for the assault.
Many parts of the middle-east are a male dominated society that believe the woman a second class citizen to men. Women are not allowed to meet in the town square when men are discussing politics or local regulation. In some countries in the middle-east women are forbidden to drive. Of course, there are many other restrictions of women the aforementioned just the restrictions that popped into my head at the time. My point being that women of the middle-east are subjected to much abuse found acceptable by the differing cultures of the middle-east, making such a common problem for women throughout the region.
The gang attack on a police station/jail to remove a rape suspect and beat him to death is not a common event in the middle-east however, and draws attention to the issues of abuse to women of the middle-east. The other thing that I note in the subject story (Which is reachable by the link at the top of this article) is that the police claimed that many of those protesting and attacking the suspected rapist were students. Is it possible that the young in India are about to change the culture of their homeland for a better treatment of women and non-acceptance of the abuse so common to the region presently? Maybe the beating to death of a rape suspect can be a good thing . . .
